Intel, the US semiconductor giant, has decided to establish a research center in Israel that will study the interaction between humans and technology.  Called the Intel Collaborative Research Institute for Computational Intelligence, it will have a $15m, five year budget and bring together researchers from the Technion Institute of Technology and the Hebrew University.  Justin Rattner, Intel’s corporate vice president and chief technology officer said: “The model for joint industry-university research is meant to strengthen the collaboration between Intel and the academy.”
